Holidays with HarpEssence, from classics to modern
Acclaimed harpist Linda Mudd along with special guest artists will present an intimate, warm and joyful celebration of a traditional Christmas music at the 7:30 p.m. Friday, December 14 at the Allen Public Library. Beautiful runs, soaring glissandos, and delicate fingering surround the audience with the gorgeous sounds of four concert grand harps.
HarpEssence is an ensemble that is comprised of four harpists who came together to celebrate their passion for the harp. The group performs all styles of music, often in intricate 4 part harmonies. Performing for special events, weddings, churches, libraries and private events, HarpEssence educates the audience on the history of their selections and the instruments in between pieces. Band leader Linda Mudd is also part of The Selkie Girls, a Celtic band...
Joining Linda are Susan Koskelin, Joan McCord and Grace Johnson. Joey Flowers will enchant the audience with the magic of the flute, a perfect complement to the majesty of the harps.
A play list includes Skater's Waltz, Greensleeves, Gesu Bambino, Bach’s Sleepers' Awake and much more. No Christmas concert is complete without Jingle Bells, but this version will be performed in a jazzy and festive style.
Sponsored by the Allen Public Library, the concert is free. Call 214-509-4911 for additional information. The library is located at 300 N. Allen Dr.
